Talented conductors expect simple and concrete things from a master class: lots of quality podium time and meaningful feedback. In a uniquely designed format, the Advanced Conducting Master Class – to be held from June 21st through June 25th, 2017 – offers just that with a professional chamber choir serving as the students’ practice instrument under the guidance of a dedicated teacher and mentor.
“We are thrilled to present this unique experiential program in Chicago. Dr. Peter Jermihov is counted among the finest Orthodox choir conductors in the world. Those attending his PaTRAM master class will be immersed, inspired and mentored in the fine art of choral conducting by an infinitely gifted maestro,” says Alexis V. Lukianov, Founder and Chairman of the PaTRAM Institute.
Maestro Jermihov is a student of the legendary Russian teacher—Il’ya Musin and continues the precepts of the Russian School of Conducting in his own conducting and teaching. He has guest-conducted such internationally acclaimed choirs and orchestras, as Cappella Romana, Gloriae Dei Cantores, Moscow & St. Petersburg State Academic Chamber Choirs, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Russian State Academic Symphony Orchestra, Shinsei Nihon Symphony Orchestra, and many others. He appears regularly as a guest-conductor, clinician, and master teacher in universities across America and is the Founder and Artistic Director of the St. Romanos Cappella with which he concertizes and records newly composed works for Orthodox worship and historical masterpieces from the Christian East and West. Maestro Jermihov has served as an Orthodox chanter and choir director in multiple jurisdictions since age 14.
